I bought this beautiful bouquet for a friend’s birthday today. They just screamed at me, albeit very softly and serenely. She loved them.

June 7, 2012 – Tulip up close

This tulip is one from a bunch I received for my birthday from a friend in mothers group. My macro lens on the G12 had a hard time getting exactly what I wanted in focus – but after much playing around – (almost) success!

May 11, 2012 – Matches

My favourite part of this shot is the sliver of late afternoon sky in the top corner.

It is always dust-free and shows her three children (including manžel), their partners and her five grandchildren.
